The massive love of Fleur de Lis

The envy of every New Orleanian is a collection of impressive Fleur de Lis. While this was true before Katrina. It seems to have multiplied after the storm as a symbol of pride in the city. You can have this massive Fleur De Lis -- the shot is in a window of an antique store down in the French Quarter.

By the way, browsing for antiques is a favorite pastime down in the Quarter.

It doesn't look so old. I like the symbol and remember it used to appear in a lot of French manuscripts.

Huge!

Is that in a storefront on Royal Street? Ah, the memories of walking down that street.
